Sony announces new Alpha a9 – The new powerhouse mirrorless camera to beat them all

It's Sony most expensive camera

Sony Alpha a9 Mirrorless Full-Frame Camera

Turns out there’s such a thing as the best camera in the world.

Or at least that’s what Sony is trying to achieve with their latest Alpha a9 camera. The new full-frame mirrorless speed demon has taken the internet by storm after its announcement earlier this week and although there technically isn’t a legit full review at the moment, let’s all take a look at what the camera is capable of on paper:

  • 24.2-megapixel full-frame stacked CMOS Sensor – Fastest processing speed up to 20 times more than its previous systems.
  • 693-Point Autofocus System and 20 frames per second shooting
  • Blackout-Free Quad-VGA 3.7m-Dot OLED EVF
  • Internal UHD 4K Video Recording
  • 5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Stabilisation
  • ISO 204,800, Silent Electronic Shutter
  • Built-In Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, Dual SD Slots

For professional videographers, the Sony Alpha a9 features full pixel readout with no pixel binning, making it possible to condense approximately 2.4 times the amount of data required for 4K shooting. The oversampling process produces the highest 4k movie image quality, you can see a sample provided by Sony below.

Sony’s new Alpha a9 camera is expected to be available next month priced at US$4,500 (est~S$6,284).

Sony has also expanded their G Master series with two new lenses – Sony FE 100mm f/2.8 and super telephoto FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6. The new super telephoto is Sony’s longest E-mount lens yet but weighs a mere 1.4kg, making it among the lightest in its class.

The new FE 100-400mm Super Telephoto Zoom Lens ship this July for about US$2,500 (est~S$3,491).
